A group of us visited here one rainy afternoon. The shop is delightful and there is a great variety of colours and styles of very functional pottery pieces. Great place to buy unique and handmade gifts.

in summer they often have local fresh fruits on the menu, and everything is great. They do not have a huge menu, but I think that's better .Reservations are not required but suggested attached is Don Zver pottery, awesome craftsperson and fun shop

Food was delicious and service excellent. I also bought 2 pottery pieces. The potter was selling some as a fund raising for an I'll child and donating his services. Very impressed by that!
